Jonathan McWatt - Success Partner

Originally from Auckland, Jonathan is now based in Marlborough. He has an extensive marketing and commercial background with multinationals, specifically Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines and Rishworth Aviation, a global leading pilot crew leasing company. Part of these roles required extensive travel, especially across Asia Pacific.

With a strong knowledge and appreciation for the digital environment which is increasingly dynamic in today’s market places, Jonathan has led and managed major projects to enhance market acquisition and customer loyalty, whilst increasing revenues and maximising profitability. Establishing and sustaining strong internal and external stakeholder relationships is critical – a key ingredient to business success and one he takes great pride in.

Jonathan is also a small business owner along with his father. The company is in its infancy, however, Jonathan and his father’s complimentary skill sets have seen the business grow well above expectations since releasing their product to market.

Along with his professional career, Jonathan holds a first-class Masters in Commerce, specialising in marketing and international business, and holds an accounting degree – a formidable skill set that has enabled him to be analytical and results driven. He is a pragmatic and constructive thinker, who is always willing to see things through the eyes of others and learn from technical subject matter experts.

Now with a young family, the timing was right for Jonathan to relocate to live and enjoy what the Marlborough region has to offer. The whole family love the outdoors so Jonathan believes they will settle in very nicely. Jonathan is an avid gardener, below average fisherman and always enjoys cooking up new creations in the kitchen – accompanied with one of Marlborough’s fine wines.
